In this article, we develop a comprehensive framework to characterize the coverage probability of backscatter communication empowered cellular Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensor networks (SNs). The developed framework considers hierarchical cellular type deployment topology which is practically useful for various IoT applications. In contrast to existing studies, the framework is geared towards system level performance analysis. Our analysis explicitly considers the dyadic fading experienced by the links and spatial randomness of the network nodes. To ensure tractability of analysis, we develop novel closed-form bounds for quantifying the coverage probability of SNs. The developed framework is corroborated using Monte Carlo simulations. Lastly, we also demonstrate the impact of various underlying parameters and highlight the utility of the derived expressions for network dimensioning.
